With all big sales and mega-streams of Views, Drake bought himself a new ride: a McLaren 675LT worth about $350,000. The dealer was Driving Emotions Motorcar in Toronto.

This is but the latest addition to Drake’s stable of wheels, which is said to include (or have included) a Bugatti Veyron, Lamborghini Gallardo, Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible, Rolls-Royce Wraith, Bentley Mulsanne, and Brabus 850 6.0 Biturbo Coupe. (Via Auto Evolution)

Then there’s Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, a gearhead from way back. He owns an ultra-rare Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, the first of the type ever built, for which he paid $1.1 million in 2002. Under the right conditions, this thing will hit 260 MPH, thanks to its 7.0 litre V8 that cranks out 1,244 BHP.
